GeneralI am coding again [long update] PinPopular

It's been a while, and now I am coding again.

Why? well I stumble upon a really nice opportunity, so I took a detour and join that startup as a CTO (more of a CEO + CTO) and worked really, REALLY hard... for 8 months, launched the product, and then one day had a dispute with the owner over a really silly matter, and got fired. First time in my life I got fired, generally people put up with me. Now I am back to where I was but this time I have greater clarity and a proper plan... not going to lie learned a lot in this past few months.

So coding after a break is just too much fun, and to add even more fun I am now developing a new software in/while learning AngularJS and REST api (using Google's Material Design[^] guidelines). I am very impressed with AngularJS, the last time I felt this way was a long time ago with C# and .Net (and before that it was VB 6.0 Smile | :) )

I have just finished developing a large eCommerce portal in AngularJS and Web api, but it was my team who developed it, I did designing and project management. So I kind of knew it but you can't claim you know something until you yourself develop a project using it.

I recommend these tutorials, If you want to start learning AngularJS.
- Overview in an hour[^]
- Awesome JumpStart Course from Dan Wahlin[^]
- Detailed Course from Scott Allen[^]

There are no proper standards when you design your REST api, but if you want a very nice overview watch this[^] before you design a RESTful Web api (I learned a lot from this presentation).

Also I have tried following IDEs and after few days, I am back to Visual Studio (we like to cry about it, but it is the best one available IMHO). Big Grin | :-D

Aptana IDE
Pros
- Feature rich
- Cross Platform
Cons
- Very heavy
- Annoying Java Updates

Sublime Text
Pros
- Feature Rich
- Some really unique features
- Light weight
- Cross Platform
Cons
- Too much to remember
- Learning curve
- Not free

Brackets
Pros
- Really Light weight
- Extension Support
(some extensions I really like)
AngularJS for Brackets
Autosave Files on Window Blur
Beautify
Brackets Git
Brackets Icons
Material-AngularJS Code Hints

- Cross Platform
Cons
- Lot of Bugs (really annoying)
- No support for Multiple screen

Visual Studio
Pros
- Feature rich
- Works well with Visual Studio Online (Free source code repository with TFS and Git)
- Really nice multiple screen support
- Nice debugging tools
- It's just better than the rest IMHO
Cons
- Late on adding support for new language / framework
- Not cross platform
- Occasional hiccups

So from now on I will show up here frequently... Wow, this was long. Big Grin | :-D
